    A special Nikon Wednesday thanks to all of those who've been willing to live through what seems to be a painful work in progress getting PN into usable form on its new platform. I miss the old format, but I understand the need to whip it into 21st century shape. Still, I'm feeling nostalgic, so I'm trotting out some shots from a few years ago, when I posted a question about that old Nikon bokeh meter I found. Good times.
    So: share some photos! Especially if you're feeling a little mischievous.

  2. Don't mind if I do. Since an image is worth 1,000 words I thought I demonstrate the size advantage of a lens for a mirrorless camera over its equivalent for a DSLR that arises from the shorter flange-to-sensor distance of the mirrorless allowing for the possibility to design a much smaller and lighter lens. Quite obvious that the lens designer didn't make use of that possibility here. The choice of white/beige paint for the Sony lens doesn't make for an inconspicuous setup either.
    Nikon D7100, Sigma 35/1.4 Art, f/4.5, 1/50s, ISO 2500
    Sony's 70-200/4 is 80 mm x 175 mm and weighs 840g; filter is 72mm. Nikon's 70-200/4 is 79mm x 178 mm and weighs 850g; filter is 67mm.
    Now I am wondering which of the two would give the better reading on the Bokemeter?

  3. Granddaughter Iris. She was watching TV and I just had to get a shot. D7100, 18-105 @ 105 20170211_1474b.jpg
  4. Excellent, both an excuse for an old image AND for a Sigma lens. From 10 years ago, D200 with Sigma 10-20. JFF_4381.JPG

  5. I'm surprised the Semolinium cell in that old meter is still working Matt.

  9. Weird. I was trying to work out why some, but not all, of the images had turned into thumbnails. Turns out I'd been logged out (despite just posting). When I logged back in, the images were back to full size. Just thought I'd mention the curio I'll be back with actual photos later.<br />

    Ooh - but now I'm me again!
